June Reads! The Little Book of Hygge by Meik Wiking


I stumbled across the concept of Hygge after the New Year, determined to make changes to be happier. This book seemed perfect! I have recently been reevaluating my life and are making changes to be happier and healthier. So I order a copy and, first of all, I love the look of the book. The white cover, orange end paper, and adorable drawings in blue and orange make the book visually cute, warm, and comforting.

I loved the book! It was just the thing I needed. I have always believed in finding happiness in everyday life and in the small things--changes in season, good food, family, etc. and this book just kind-of solidified that view for me and put a name to it--Hygge! The book spells out how the Danes find happiness and while not everything will work for me, living in the United States, there is a lot I can take away from it. I plan to get my hygge on tonight by grilling out hamburgers and enjoying family time around a fire.
